There is a new feature to commercial search.
You can now search by picture ID just put a # in front of the picture id.
For example: Click here
I know the uploader has been super flakey of late especially if you are running windows 10.
It's been completely rebuilt from the bottom up and will be vastly more reliable than the old system.
It is about 50% there now so I would hope it will be live in about 2 weeks time.
Thanks for your patience.
We are excited to announce we are now offering a Mounted framed print option.
Michael is in the process of adding all the different items to the site this afternoon so you should start to see them appearing very soon.
A full product description will be on the site later tomorrow, but for a brief explanation of the product just click the product pop up on the commercial site.
We have been busy improving the display of our acrylics on the commercial site on our why us page. We are hoping that this will show off the quality of the product that is produced by our new supplier.
New profile pages are ready for beta testing
In order to have a shortened URL you will need to set it within your members account settings page http://mem.photo4me.com/Account/Settings however I'm still working on the code and it will not be available to edit for 1-2 days. For members that created a tiny URL on the old site, this feature will start to work, and you will be able to edit your tiny url within 1-2 days.
Here's an example of how they will now look: http://www.photo4me.com/profile/jon the site links will start to update with your profile links redirecting to these new pages very soon. If you have not implemented a tiny url then it will default to your member id for example in http://www.photo4me.com/profile/1
If you want to share links you can add extra filters
An example would be london
For the filters to work you need have them in the correct order for example:
The easiest way to create a link is to use the filtering options in the search bar and the url will automatically refresh, then just copy the link and send to friends or use the social sharing buttons under your avatar on the commercial site.
Coming soon custom folders
This new layout of the application gives us the ability to start to give members the ability to create custom folders for their portfolios. And this is how they will work.
Within your portfolio you will soon be able to create folders to sort your images into categories. In order to get these folders to work you would simply replace the category with a folder name and the filter will work. The work on this new feature will start this week and we hope it will be live by 6th Feburary providing we don't hit any problems with implementing this into our platforms.
For more information you might like to read this blog from last week:
UPDATE**** Now fully functioning. See:
This week I will be working on the new tiny URL's for members.
An example of a tiny URL would be http://photo4me.com/jon
as you can see that takes the visitor directly to my portfolio page. http://www.photo4me.com/canvasprints/_/_/grossSales/_/1
(which does not roll off the tongue).
In the past when the site was smaller, it was easy to have a shortened URL like above. We can no longer have them off the main route of the site, as it is causing some application issues. and they need to be moved to either a new domain e.g. http://profile.photo4me.com/jon or have them within a folder of the main site e.g. http://photo4me.com/profile/jon.
We need to give fair warning to members that have the old style of shortened URL that they will stop working after 31/03/2015, when the new ones will take over.
We will make an announcement later this week when we have decided the new layout of the tiny URL.
We are aware that this may cause some members issues but the work is essential and we thank you for your patience.
